"Jared "Doc" Estes of Olympia, Washington does folk with a loud, joyful, almost punkish swagger. His latest album, 'Jared's Insomnia Cafe', is collection of quality originals and a few arrangements of traditional folk standards, including the great folk tunes 'Codine' and 'In the Pines'. The production is stripped down. Ecstatic folk with an olympia touch." - J Moss from the Modern Folk Music of America
Found herein is 7 originals and 3 covers. A Psalm explores the instrumental side of Jared's Insomnia Cafe, "What the Night May Bring" is a foot-stomping juggernaut and "It's All OK For You Ain't It" is a throwback to Jared "Doc" Estes classics.
The covers include Buffy Sainte-Marie's "Cod'ine", Leadbelly's "In The Pines", and a rendition of the traditional ballad "I Was Born 10,000 Years Ago".
